The Humanist Way: An Introduction to Ethical Humanist Religion
By Edward L. Ericson
Forward by Isaac AsimovEricson sets forth the principal tenets of religious Humanism and clarifies both similarities and differences between secular (nonreligious) Humanism and Humanism conceived as a nontheistic religious faith. He confronts the Fundamentalist and other Extreme Right attacks on "the religion of Secular Humanism" that have gripped and confused the media and public.
The purpose of this book is twofold: to inform the general reader and wider religious public about what ethical and religious Humanism is and is not; and to serve as an orientation for Ethical Humanists who wish to deepen their understanding of Humanist religion, particularly as it is expressed in the Ethical Culture societies and in many liberal churches and fellowships.
Humanism, in the context of this book, affirms the freedom, dignity, and well-being of all people as the supreme object of the moral life, without belief in a supernatural power or being.
